On Monday afternoon, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport shared that Ravens DL Calais Campbell suffered a calf strain during Sunday’s 24-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

This will end a streak of 98 consecutive games played for Campbell, dating back to Week 8 of 2014 when he was a member of the Arizona Cardinals

Campbell, who has been a key contributor to Baltimore’s 6-2 start, will miss at least two games according to Rapoport. That would indicate that the earliest Campbell could return would be on Thanksgiving when the Ravens travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers.

Campbell’s ability to take on double teams, rush the passer, as well as open up pass rushing lanes for teammates, will be sorely missed while he recovers. However, the Ravens defense managed to smother the Colts offense Sunday without Campbell, holding Indianapolis scoreless in the second half. Derek Wolfe ended up playing a season high 51 snaps for Baltimore in lieu of Campbell.

The Ravens traded for Campbell and signed Wolfe to invigorate their defensive front, which struggled to hold ground against dangerous rushing attacks in 2019, highlighted by Derrick Henry rushing for 195 yards on 30 carries against Baltimore, a major factor in eliminating the Ravens from the playoffs last season.

Baltimore figures to be without Campbell when the Ravens host the Titans in Baltimore on November 22nd.
